Kenny Terrace will be connected to Saltzman and Thompson roads. The new road alignment will be a three-lane road (one travel lane in each direction and a center turn lane). Other improvements include:
- Buffered bike lanes
- Improved street lighting
This project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-sharing Program for capacity and safety improvements in the North Bethany/Bonny Slope West area.
Comments on the alternatives will be accepted through May 17. Once an alternative is selected, the design will be further developed. A second open house is anticipated for fall. Construction is tentatively expected for 2021-2022.
Washington County is committed to planning, building and maintaining a great transportation system, ensuring the safety of all roadway users, and operating the County roadway system in cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
